The guy at the rental store very handily stowed it in that somewhat open area that euphemistically passes as a backseat - top down, of course. It was another matter entirely for me to remove it from that position once I got it home. Managed to rope in an innocent passer-by to assist. Sometimes being a single woman has its disadvantages.........but not very often.

Whooee, girl. You must be muscular. These things are heavy. I have a trailer with a gate that swings down for ramp loading. Whew! Had me worried there for a while.

Why are you removing sod? I've learned to solarize and rake of burned leaf material and keep the root mat when converting a yard to a "native landscape". Acts of creation are ordinarily reserved for gods and poets. To plant a pine, one need only own a shovel. -- Aldo Leopold

I normally would. Time factor. The customer wants this done in 2 weeks before the annual home tour. If I known her before she contracted me, I would have had her not water for several months and I would solarize and torch burn the top layer of turf. I kinda lucked out on this. She contracted me Thursday and the next customer on Friday contracted me to construct a rain garden for them and they needed a lot of sod. I'll pull this sod up and transport a few miles and relay it.

If I do buy a used one for the business, it won't be a Ryan. Probably will be a Bluebird. They are nice pieces of equipment.

I've tried all 3 now, Ryan, Bluebird and Classen. Survey says "Classen!".
